An Infographic to Show You How to Write an Impressive Thank-You Letter After Interview

Job interviews can be incredibly nerve-racking. Once you return from one, you may be compelled to lie on the couch and regroup your scrambled thoughts and emotions. But you shouldn’t neglect the importance of sending a thank-you letter after an interview. Remember, the interviewing staff member(s) took time out of their busy schedule to meet with you in hopes that you’d be a perfect fit for their company. Show them how grateful you are by crafting a well-written letter expressing your sincere thanks, as well as your increased interest in working for the company.

When drafting a thank-you letter for a job interview, you want to be thorough but precise. Since the staff members probably interviewed many people throughout the day, bring up some of the major points you discussed in order to jog their memory as to who you are. Discuss in short detail what impressed you about the company in the short time you spent in the office. And remember: this is a business communication, so use professional language.

Close your letter with an invite for further communication, especially in the case that you neglected to mention a professional experience you feel the interviewing committee should know about. Invite them to contact you when they’ve made their decision, regardless of whether or not they chose to move forward with you in the hiring process. Doing so will show that you’re confident that your interview went well, but that you also are able to face the possibility of disappointment head on.

And, of course, you can always hope the other candidates didn’t send a thank-you letter. If that’s the case, you’ll definitely stick out in the interviewer’s mind!
